First I NEED to show you my new hair cut that I got Saturday morning!!
I LOVE it! IT'S SO FLUFFY! I'm used to my hair being short & bobbed like this. I had grown it out for our wedding, but that was almost a year ago, & my long hair was really starting to bug me. I was happy to see it go. Here's what I looked like that morning right before I left to get the chop.
Apparently I always hold my head the same way when I take my picture.... I got it colored too. Colored back to my "natural" color. Haha! My hair is a pretty dark brown, and I wanted it back to that & all shiny & pretty. I love it!
Anyway, I wanted to also talk today about Birchbox! I recently signed up for this service & so far I have been loving it!
Birchbox is a $10 monthly service that sends deluxe-sized samples of various life & beauty products to your door for you to try out. When you sign up, you fill out a quick survey, and the items that they send to you will be hand-picked based off of your responses. So they really try to send you things they think you'll enjoy receiving. You can also buy the products you love from your Birchbox from them & receive rewards!
This is my fourth month getting a Birchbox, but I hadn't reviewed it yet because I wanted to make sure I was liking the service & the things that I was being sent, and let me tell you now, I love it! Here is my May Birchbox which I received on Saturday.
This month's Birchbox had a Gossip Girl theme. They do not always have themes, but sometimes they have fun ones. This one resulted in a great box! Here's what I got:
*Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline Eau de Toilette Spray (I'm wearing it today & it smells AMAZING!)
*Dr. Jart + Waterfuse BB Cream
*Ojon volume advance Volumizing Conditioner (used this today too & my hair feels super silky)
*stila sparkle waterproof liquid eye liner (this is a pearly shimmer light brown color- not harsh at all & it's full size! Gonna last quite a while!)
*twistband Hair Tie (I haven't used this yet, since my hair's been chopped I haven't put it up yet, but when I work out, I like to wear my short hair in a half pony, so I'll be using this then- it's so pretty & colorful!)
*Notecard (not pictured)
You can see these & all of the other products that people may have gotten in their May Birchbox here.
It's really fun getting this little box in the mail every month. It's a new surprise ever time! I have received a couple of things that I wouldn't really use, for example, I've received a perfume that I didn't like, but that's such a personal thing & basically impossible for them to predict. Most of the time the things I've received have been amazing & I've used them all up. If you haven't thought about signing up, you should! It's a great little monthly gift to yourself!
